    Does anyone know of any ranges/places where they have secured lockers or storage for firearms? Also, how much do they charge for it?

    And no...your house doesn't count :)

    Thanks all!

    The new West Coast Armory range in Bellevue will rent a locker annually to members. I think it's $120 a year for a pistol locker, $240 for a rifle for the year.

    Address.
    17907 Bothell Everett Hwy, Bothell, WA 98012

    Storage Rates
    Small Locker (1.5 cubic feet): $300.00 per year
    Medium Locker (3 cubic feet): $600.00 per year
    Large Locker (9 cubic feet): $900.00 per year

    But, you have to be a member to use the place and I’ve never been there.
    Standard Membership
    $50.00 + Range Fees

    Standard Plus Membership
    $150.00 + Range Fees

    Red, White & Blue Membership
    $150.00 + Range Fees

    Premier Membership
    $250.00 + Range Fees

    All the info above I found on their site.

    Also if you have to drive a long distance to use an indoor gun range that provides lockers then my suggestion would be to find a range closer to home that doesn’t have lockers.

    Curious to know why people would not want to keep their firearms at their own house? Other than going on a long vacation (more than a month), I see no need to ever move them from my house.

    My employer has a policy that says no guns on company property AT ALL. And that includes locked in your car in the parking lot.

    Every couple of weeks I might want to head to the range during lunch so I could leave a couple in the locker there after I go on a Sat or Sun and then not have to go home first (in the entirely opposite direction) during that week.

    Gotcha, I was thinking your thread was more along the lines of let me stash my collection elsewhere :bluelaugh:


    Having a dedicated gun stashed at the range would be kinda nice actually :thumbup:

    I am curious as to how your employer would know what is or isn't in your car..

    Sure its nice to follow rules, but this seems a little ridiculous...

    If I were in this situation, I would get a good safe and bolt it to the car someplace. Under the seat or under the center console would be my preference..

    Just my 2 pennies...

    I agree it's a pretty ridiculous rule, and probably only one of those things that you would get reported on after the fact or because of a coworker looking to get you in trouble. All I can say is on a PUBLIC forum, if one were to post about following a policy, a gun safe onsite at a range is handy if your employer has these kinds of odd rules.

    :thumbup:

    But locked storage in a vehicle is never a bad idea.

    I was wondering though - can you keep a firearm in a saftey deposit box? Just rent one out for personal use, and store a range gun there. With the cost of ammo today, a stop at the bank is usually necessary before range time anyway.

    I don't see why not...

    How would they know what is or isn't in your box...

    And I see people do it all the time in the movies.. :thumbup:

    Military service and students living on campus are two reasons that easily come to mind. For me it was military service and I lived on a ship. Some commands will allow weapon storage in their armoury. Mine did until they changed the policy, and told me to find another place to store my guns. I wish I could have found a place, like an indoor range with lockers in the common areas. There are plenty of reasons a person my not be able to keep a gun where they temporarily live, this should not prohibit them from owning a firearm as long as they can store it safely.

    You must work for Philips. They claim the right to search employees' cars for weapons. Whether it is legal or not is another matter.

    Chase, for one, has language in the agreement that could be interpreted as prohibiting the storage of a gun in their safe deposit boxes.

    What they don't know won't hurt you.

    Wouldn't matter to me.

    An employment contract is a contract. If I took the job, and signed the contract, that's giving my word.

    If that doesn't matter to you, so be it.

    My word is my word.

    this might sound off the wall but for long term you could use a pawn shop. I know that at least one of the pawn shops in Salem stores a couple of very valuable firearms collections. The owner put each one into Pawn for a small amount then every 60 days pays the interest on the loans. Granted this would do the OP no good for a lunch time shooting session. As picking the gun up would involve a BGC.
